Custo Barcelona by Custo Barcelona: A Fruity-Floral Cypress (2008) {New Perfume} + Cypress Is In {Trend Alert}


Quirky Spanish design brand Custo Barcelona, with an unending affection for bold colors and prints, has launched its first signature fragrance bearing the same name.

The perfume was created by perfumer Alberto Morillas and is reported to be both "appetising and innovative"; the novel twist is immediately conveyed by the name of the family of the scent categorized as a "fruity floral cypress", with cypress being more unexpected...


Traditionally more of a masculine note, we have seen cypress appear in a number of unisex or feminine perfumes lately: Dior Escale à Portofino; Eau d'Italie Magnolia Romana; Tom Ford Italian Cypress; Bond No.9 Lexington Avenue; Etro Via Verri Vintage. And now it is also defining enough to be advertised in a mainstream designer feminine fragrance targeting younger women, according to the advert.

Notes description: "top notes of bitter orange, Calabrian lemon, pink grapefruit and bergamot. Middle notes feature wild strawberries, black currant, white peony and orange blossom, revealing base notes of lemon tree wood, amber and musk."

The originality of the modern-design look of the bottle is the result of the worlk of National Design Award winners Pati Núñez and Toni Arola.
